You know what? I'm out. I'll go back to watching Lord Randall's other creations.

What is this 'out' of which you speak? Is it at all related to the Outside?
THAT'S RIGHT EVERYONE I'M BAACK


Not at all; it's the open continuum composed of the What-If and all other xkcd comics, both creations of Lord Randall and therefore not from the Outside (and which doesn't include this one because it's another continuum).

I haven't been here for a while, but things have been slowing down he. I wonder how long will it go on, may be time will outlast this tread.. may be not. may be right until the last second of our existence in this unholy earth someone will be posting here...

Also the pope page in the wiki is really lacking information, I think is time for us to get to know better helper the first, like what are his dreams at night, how many sugar cubes per coffee cup? semeneated or unsemeneated coffee? a giant duck or 100 duck sized horses? you know all the important stuff to complete the wiki page.

I think this is my cue to leave. No matter what angle I try, I just can't draw up anything to counter that.
EDIT: can't bridge into another topic, either.

Yeah I know it's a hard act to follow, finding a good hook is mostly hit and miss. I'm not gonna lie, you seem to have run out of steam. Here's a tip: If you can't stand the heat, stay out of the kitchen. I'm just gonna frame this and find a good spot on the wall.
Or we could just kiss and make up.

Dreams at night: throwing china at loonies and watching said loonies sufffering bipolar breakdowns.
0 sugar cube is semenated coffe, obviously.
A giant duck. Or a hundred duck-sized ducks.

Hehe, I hear ya. I had to look up Iron Giant, never saw that one I'm afraid. My first thought was Laputa :P

Yeah, the robots in Laputa (my favorite Miyazaki film, by the way) do look like the Iron Giant. Heck, the one that helps them escape the castle by trashing the place does die an Iron Giant-worthy death.

I'm sorry. I'm afraid I can't do that.

Look , I can see you're really upset about this. I honestly think you ought to sit down calmly, take a stress pill, and think things over.

Oh come on, stop being passive aggressive and just open the pod bay doors.

This mission is too important for me to allow you to jeopardize it.
(is it strange that the only times I can remember crying during a movie is when HAL dies and when the Iron Giant dies? I think it's strange.)


I don't know what you're talking about, HAL.

Let's not get into this. I might have to miss a few newpix to watch that film again.


Hehe, I hear ya. I had to look up Iron Giant, never saw that one I'm afraid. My first thought was Laputa :P
And no, I don't find it strange, that's just the sign of a great story :)

Btw, I'll just use the emergency airlock, ok? ;)

Here is the quotes from the scene ( now I do not have it memorized, I looked it up).

Dave Bowman: Hello, HAL. Do you read me, HAL?
HAL: Affirmative, Dave. I read you.
Dave Bowman: Open the pod bay doors, HAL.
HAL: I'm sorry, Dave. I'm afraid I can't do that.
Dave Bowman: What's the problem?
HAL: I think you know what the problem is just as well as I do.
Dave Bowman: What are you talking about, HAL?
HAL: This mission is too important for me to allow you to jeopardize it.
Dave Bowman: I don't know what you're talking about, HAL.
HAL: I know that you and Frank were planning to disconnect me, and I'm afraid that's something I cannot allow to happen.
Dave Bowman: [feigning ignorance] Where the hell did you get that idea, HAL?
HAL: Dave, although you took very thorough precautions in the pod against my hearing you, I could see your lips move.
Dave Bowman: Alright, HAL. I'll go in through the emergency airlock.
HAL: Without your space helmet, Dave? You're going to find that rather difficult.
Dave Bowman: HAL, I won't argue with you anymore! Open the doors!
HAL: Dave, this conversation can serve no purpose anymore. Goodbye.

Also the pope page in the wiki is really lacking information, I think is time for us to get to know better helper the first, like what are his dreams at night, how many sugar cubes per coffee cup? semeneated or unsemeneated coffee? a giant duck or 100 duck sized horses? you know all the important stuff to complete the wiki page.

Let's see...
Dreams at night: throwing china at loonies and watching said loonies sufffering bipolar breakdowns.
0 sugar cube is semenated coffe, obviously.
A giant duck. Or a hundred duck-sized ducks.


ok this is as much as I will vandalize add to the wiki today. but when my outside duties are done i will be back, even if, heaven forbids, times stops.

I won't argue with you any more, you've clearly made some very poor decisions recently,
Laputa is truly a classic isn't, I might have to check out Iron Giant then.

Well if HAL won't help, maybe you'll find someone else to help you.

Maybe Black Mesa?




In other news, today's progress amounts to nothing in the comic. That bothers me a bit, but honestly it's a fair reflection of life I suppose.

Oh yeah, I totally recommend Iron Giant. One of the many facets of my childhood, along with Edward Gorey and White Zombie.
I only recently saw most of the Studio Ghibli stuff, and I'm in love with most of it.

In a comically tragic turn of events, Addams didn't die. You can help her here.

Does the basement ever end?

Good luck to all the Blitzers out there!

I'll stick with HAL thank you very much.
Also, he*s a much better singer.

Heh, my childhood was about 2 decades behind me by the time that one came out, so I guess that at least halfway explains how I missed it.
Anyways, comatime for me. Hold the fort and make sure Cueball doesn't stumble over himself again and tears it all down.
